Today’s cooking adventure was Low Carb Pigs in a Blanket. I started with the usually oopsie roll recipe found here: http://yourlighterside.com/?p=174. In order to make them corn dog batter flavored I added 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard and used 1 packet of Splenda in the yoke mixture.
I used Lil Smokies as the “pigs” in this recipe. Once the oopsie batter was complete I placed a small strip on the pan (slightly larger than the lil smokies). I then place one lil smokie on each strip and covered it with additional batter.

Once assembled, I baked the pigs in a blanket until browned (25-30 mins)
Oopsie Batter 4 net carbs
Lil Smokies (1/2 pack) 6 carbs
Total: 10 net carbs (entire recipe). A little less than one carb per pig in a blanket.
*Note carb counts are estimated based on the products I used. Check nutrition labels for accurate carb counts.

Comments: These turned out really well and tasted just like corn dogs! Next time I will try to use a little less batter so the pig-to-blanket ratio is better. Also, they do not taste very good cold, so make sure you let them come to room temperature if you store them.This content will be shown after all post
